"There is limited pro bono work in the firm and it doesn't appear to be prioritised by many teams. There is some floating around but it is usually partner-specific."
Second year trainee, Nottingham
"I have no idea if we do it at all. I gather that trainees are not exposed to it."

"I have not personally been involved in pro bono work, though I have done some charity work."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"There's a mentoring scheme, we read with pupils in a local primary school and there are also regular opportunities to help with local food banks and projects. These projects can be painting, gardening or clearing rubbish etc. The trainees will be sleeping out in October as part of our challenge this year to raise awareness and money for our charity of the year. We have a nominated charity every year and all of our fundraising work for that year is for that charity."
